Important Notes:

We want everyone to have fun and to come home safely. It's going to be imperative that everyone stays in a group, there will be no exception to this rule. Because we are going to be a fairy large group, we will implement a two team buddy system so we can all be responsible for everyone's safety. I will send out wavier forms for everyone to sign your life away before this trip begins. If you don't sign, you don't go.
